Em seguida, dirija-se às colinas da Bulgária para conhecer mosteiros escondidos e aldeias repletas de história. Experimente os extremos da Bulgária, desde as praias do Mar Negro em Varna e Bourgas aos modernos e desenvolvidos resorts de esqui, como Bansko e Pamporovo.

Bulgaria’s capital Sofia bears the marks of its 3000-year history, from Roman remains and Byzantine churches to Stalinist monuments. The mountainous Balkan Range stretches from west to east, almost reaching the Black Sea coast. You'll find major port cities Varna and Bourgas and popular beach resorts nearby. Visit the Danubian Plain, which boasts the noble city of Ruse with its Central European elegance.
Delve into centuries of history in Sofia's cobbled boulevards, but don't miss its swanky shopping centres, or enjoy the lively port city of Varna. In Veliko Turnovo you'll discover a living museum in its streets, churches and fortress. Scramble about the Roman Amphitheatre in Plovdiv's well-preserved old city. And in Ruse, admire the Neoclassical façades around Ploshtad Svoboda from an open-air cafe.
Near Sofia, join locals to ski on Mount Vitosha, or further afield in the Pirin Mountains at the quaint village of Bansko. Escape to hidden monasteries, like UNESCO-protected Rila with its extravagant frescoes and dramatic location in the Rila Mountains. Beach-hop along the Black Sea Coast stopping at pumping resorts, or take a more peaceful dip at hot mineral baths in Velingrad.
